Jewish Home MKs in Facebook Battle

MK Uri Orbach (Jewish Home) slammed his fellow Jewish Home MK Zevulun Orlev in a Facebook posting Tuesday. “With Orlev and his people there’s never a dull moment,” he wrote. “There’s no maneuver, trick or shtick that they won’t try in order to save their skins as the voters’ verdict approaches.”

“I hope and believe that the elections committee will know how to stand up to the pressure, the threats and the de-legitimizations,” he added.

Orbach appeared to be responding to reports that Orlev is trying to change the way the primary elections are run in the wake of polls predicting his defeat at the hands of Naftali Bennet.
